Los Angeles Clippers owner Donald T. Sterling, who's no stranger to lawsuits of one kind or another, is now being sued by former West Wing actress Kim Webster, TMZ reported yesterday afternoon.
Webster, who played Ginger the secretary for several seasons on The West Wing, and her fellow tenants filed the lawsuit on Wednesday.
TMZ writes that legal papers include "a laundry list of complaints about Sterling's allegedly
dangerous mismanagement and terrible treatment of tenants -- Webster
claims Sterling was warned about the faulty wiring way before the fire
happened ... and did nothing."
Sterling is certainly no stranger to controversy.
In 2004, the billionaire was the focus of a Smoking Gun article titled, "NBA Owner in Sex Scandal: Los Angeles Clippers boss admitted he paid to play." The piece details how Sterling allegedly paid a young woman to have sex with him.
In 2008, L.A. Weekly published a cover story, "Donald T. Sterling's Skid Row Mirage,"
about Sterling's bogus claim that he was building a homeless center in
The article also ran a time line of just a few of the court cases involving Sterling, several of which deal with his work as a landlord.
Webster's lawsuit now just adds to the pile.
